Boomer's Struggle by FoxxFireArt Boomer's Struggle by FoxxFireArt
This is an older picture of mine. Something I made a year ago, as you can see by the date.

I'm a fan of the new series Battlestar Galactica. Boomer is my favorite character. This is actually the one who was killed on Galactica. The image is suppose to show the conflict in her. My favorite touch was the cylon eyes on the shadow. I left out a red spot. That would of been too much.

This started as a hand drawing. I used that as a guide to create the full colored image on computer. I used Paintshop Pro Vr.7 to color this image. I'd like to mail a print of this image to the actress who plays the character one day.

sweet I love NuBSG as well. The shadow thing was really clever, and I think leaving out the red eye was a good idea. Boomer could look a bit more like grace park (her face is a little hard to recognize) but that's pretty minor.

Too bad Boomer turned out so evil, but there was still Athena.

Thanks. It's too bad Boomer was the one who gave into her darker side. Who'd figure the one who spent the least amount of time with humans turned into the better one?

Yeah, and Athena wasn't treated nearly as well as Boomer was. Boomer turned into a real hater. Anyway. keep up the awesome work

i like the concept here and what you have achieved in the final piece.
one criticism i might have is how close the light strip is to her hand, in thumbnail view i thought she has a lightsaber.
now i started thinking about that light and where its placed im starting to think the highlights and shadows are wrong.....uh oh. i dont wanna leave a harsh critique.
bottom line: i like the image overall but feel the strip light need to change into some other background object.
